“An Old Favorite since Chicago many moons ago”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Try the pigs in a blanket with tropical syrup. Actually, their entire menu is awesome! Be prepared to wait, but you can cut your wait time in half by calling ahead.

“Best Pancakes on the planet”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Great food. Huge crowd. Get there early. Have the apple pancake thingy. Sorry can't remember the name. Ask for ice cream to go on top. Then have a cab or a good friend on standy by to carry you out of there. Back to the hotel for a serious nap. "Country Wolf" Take you back to the city..

“Great food!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Grilled egg salad sandwich, potato pancakes and soufflé omelettes are very good. The coffee used to be excellent, but that seems to have slipped a little lately. Also, very good for take out. They get very busy on the weekends so you may have to park across the street.

“A Must Try for Breakfast”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you're anywhere near this place, you have to try it. The 4 egg soufflé omelets are great, the pancakes awesome, and the specialty pancakes (we tried the pumpkin pancakes) even better. Can be busy, once you've tried it you'll see why, but you can call ahead to get your name on their waiting list on busy days.
